Why does DoubleEdgeMusic.com exist?
In creating this website, Sean and Troy had a central purpose: “to change the way you listen to and buy music.” Perhaps you have noticed the same phenomenon in your own life that Sean and Troy have noticed as their have ministered in a wide variety of churches and interacted with Christians from all walks of life…. When you scroll through a fellow Christian brother’s iPod, you cannot often see any distinction in the titles on his playlists and those of an unbeliever. Or when you jump in the car of a sister in the Lord and ride along as she plays a few tunes, you cannot often hear any difference in the songs coming through her radio and that of an agnostic or sceptic.
And yet, throughout the Scriptures we are exhorted to be careful with what we hear (Mark 4:24) and how we hear it (Luke 8:18), to attune our ears unto wisdom (Prov. 2:2, 23:12) and to guard our hearts (Prov 4:23).

Who is Troy Isaacs?
Troy and his twin brother Sean, were born premature at five months, in Grand Bahama, Bahamas. At that time, there was no hope for premature babies that young, so a priest was brought to the hospital to perform the last rites. But God had greater plans and miraculously, they survived. However, due to excessive amounts of oxygen given in Troy’s incubator, he became legally blind. His vision became like that of an out-of-focus camera lens. Despite this impairment, he had a normal upbringing and happy childhood. His mother was determined not to allow his disability to prevent him from functioning as normally as possible.

God answered his prayer and the twins survived! They were raised in a God-fearing home by their mother. They were required to attend church every time the doors were opened. Since they lived one block away from the local Assembly of God church, there were no excuses for staying home. Although, Sean was a very shy and reserved little boy, he had a gift to sing. He was confident when he sang and joined the children’s choir at his church. The complements he received birthed a desire for more recognition. Singing became his way of receiving attention from his peers.
At age seventeen, Sean left the Bahamas to attend college in Brooklyn, N.Y. The previously shy boy, was now self-assured – desiring a career in the entertainment industry…. (click for more)
